Unsettled

Thursday afternoon. I'm so tired. I'm not sleeping particularly well (it's the cold) and work is just putting me through it, so I wind up feeling very hazy all day. Add to that the general lethargy of the stuffy-head-coughing thing, and it's just not pretty. Nor, in fact, am I, at this point. When I look in the mirror, I see a nearly-Albino face staring back at me. My eyelashes seem to have disappeared, my skin has the color and consistency of poi, and my hair is just lying there. Gee, what a good idea it was to drink tons of alcohol and eat lots of bad food all last week!

I'm going to my Junior League team's wine tasting social tonight, but I'm not sure how long I'll stay. The cold and tiredness are part of it, but I also don't want to end up sloshing down a bunch of wine and then feeling like poop tomorrow. Speaking of tomorrow, I'm thinking of changing my major at school from Management to Accounting, so I have to go to an orientation tomorrow night at 6pm. The unfortunate thing is that Alcott's basketball game is at 7pm and it's about 20 minutes away from the UoP campus. I won't miss the boy's game, so I'll have to leave early. Hope that's OK with the powers that be, but I'd rather wait another month to be able to start class again than ever disappoint that child. Ever.

I think I need to get something to eat before the wine tasting. What sounds good?

I am sure you will feel better soon. It always takes a couple of days to regroup after such a "feast". Here in this little country, when we are about to go out for a big drinking night, we eat a big Tsp of olive oil before. It is utterly gross but you cannot get drunk even if you tried! I mean you get all tipsy and nice, but no stomach yuckiness, nor hangover the day after!

Before I go out drinking, I usually eat something starchy, which seems to limit the damage. As you probably know, alternating between the wine and water will also help.

If you're feeling less than glowing, why not try one of the new tanning treatments -- if I remember correctly, I was always getting solicitations in the mail or the free weekly flyers. The self-tanning stuff works pretty well, even if you just did it on your face & neck. I always felt better about myself when I had a tan.

It's too late now, but I would have eaten some soup. Only because it sounds like you're getting a cold.

Hope you feel better today!

I want cheetos right now...but thats probably not the right kind of "cheese" that is good with wine! Feel better!

I hope you start feeling better soon too. I bet your body is just adjusting to the different climates and possibly you are getting a cold. Take good care of yourself and eat something warm and fillling. Chile con carne?
